Auto-set clocks from GPX

by Mark R

I’m not really certain whether anyone uses alarm clock radios anymore, but GPX, a division of Digital Products International (DPI), has just released two new IntelliSet clocks that somehow have auto set time-keeping features.

Now, that feature already has my attention, and a recent Press Release told me how it works. Apparently, they can adjust to a user’s time zone, and a single button can adjust for daylight savings time shifts.

There are two models of these clocks. The first is the C209B with a red-colored 0.9 inch display, and the second is the C389B with a 1.2 inch amber display and dual alarm sets. Both of them have AM/FM radios, dimmer switches, a built-in battery backup, as well as line input for tabletop connectivity for MP3 players.

On a somewhat related note, GPX has recently begun an environmental commitment that includes reducing their packaging sizes. They also plan on using recyclable fiber board in place of polyform, as well as using recyclable plastics in place of clamshell packages. GPX also plans to eventually replace all of their plastic with recyclable paper.

These two alarm clocks are available now at major retailers worldwide. The C209B is priced at about $12.99, and the C389B for about $19.99.

What do you think people are using instead of alarm clocks?

Ben2K, perhaps their cell phone? That’s what I’ve been using for the past 7 years anyways.

I don’t see the point in this, the clock I had for years can pick up the signal from the atomic clock over the radio waves. It updates ever hour or so, time zone and all. The new one I have even has a docking port for the Sandisk Sansa.
